SINGAPORE: A Vietnamese—registered cargo vessel damaged one of its hatches after it collided with another vessel in the waters off Singapore on Saturday.

The Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore said the collision occurred about 3.4 kilometres south of Sisters Islands.

MPA said there was no oil spill or injury to crew members. Traffic in the Singapore Strait was also not affected.

A YouTube video showed the collision between the Vietnamese—registered cargo vessel "MV Thuan My" and a Marshall Islands—registered bulk carrier "MV Beks Halil".

Following the damage, the Vietnamese ship was shifted to the Raffles Reserved Anchorage for repairs.

The bulk carrier had no significant damage and continued its journey.
